Favorite photo(s) Friday - a little bit of my life

{Time capsule}
My life - Tuesday Feb. 7th
I've had quite a few roles in my a daughter, a student, wife,
a long and rewarding career as a Registered Nurse,
 an elementary school tutor for at risk kids and now part time photographer/full time mom.
Being a mom is hands down the best thing I've ever done.
It's my personal belief that motherhood isn't about a list of tasks we complete
or having a spotlessly clean home at all times,
it's about being there for our children.
The little ones and big ones.
I'm not a perfect mom but I'm a loving and caring one.
I thoroughly enjoy my children, and yes even the stages or phases
that are a little more trying. I've learned they all pass in time.
One of my favorite things is to observe my kids doing what they do best 
which is play.
And I jump in now and then too!

The storyboard shows parts of my life over about a 13 hour time period on Tuesday, Feb. 7.
There's Will and Grace at 7:20 am (on the left) waiting for their Dad to put on his coat 
to drive them to school.
The top row shows a photo of my kitchen table (a place we spend quite a bit
of time doing homework, crafts and eating meals),
then there's a cup of my favorite tea in front of the computer...
I was editing a lot that day.
Middle row is our 9 month old pup Zoe looking awfully cute
and Will (after school) working on some Valentines.
The last row is my little fish (Will) in the bath
and Grace fast asleep around 8pm that night.
She has to have her favorite stuffed animals arranged 'just so perfectly.'

I feel incredibly blessed.

the long road

These turned out fabulous Gail! I can't wait to do the same next week. I think I love the one of Will too. :-)

I'm at my mom's right now on her computer. Thank goodness for her living so close. I finally uploaded yesterday's photos. You have to let me know what you think. ;-)

Had a fun time last night with Lori. We'll have to chat soon.

aw, I love that one of William waiting at the door. And that pitcher on your table is amazing. Not to mention beautiful Grace even more beautiful when she is sleeping with her peeps.

Thanks for my morning smile!

I loved getting a peek into your world! So tell me, is puppyhood at 9 months better than 4 months? Charlie is pure trouble right now!

Eva said...

Gail, what a great glimpse into your daily life. Truly blessed, indeed. Thanks for sharing.

This was such a cute post! Will is looking a little tired in the morning. :) Puppy is adorable!! And my Allison is just like Grace... must arrange everything "just so". :)
